ABOUT THE ARTISTS:
Barbara Mantini is a powerful and versatile vocal artist, with a professional singing and acting career spanning over 30 years. She is best known as one of the members of Canada’s premier vocal trio “The Mantini Sisters”, who have performed across Canada and the United States in their own productions.
As well as performing at music festivals and concert series as a jazz vocal artist, or classical soprano, Barbara has ventured into a solo cabaret project called “Broadway Divas”. She has also been a featured soloist with many symphony orchestras.
When not performing, Barbara teaches in the “Acting for Film and Television Program” at Niagara College and at her own private voice studio in Welland.
“Sweeping the crowd into the moment of each song…Mantini proved, once again, to be a consummate entertainer that can go from torch to theatrical singer in a heartbeat, and do both stunningly well.” L. Peppas, The Tribune
Doug Mundy, a long time Niagara resident, began studying piano at 10 years of age concentrating on Royal Conservatory of Music repertoire. At age 14, Doug began experimenting with improvisation, mainly playing around with simple blues progressions and pop/rock solos. By age 16, Doug was already performing in rock, blues and country ensembles around the Niagara and Hamilton Regions.
Blues improvisation led to the formal study of music (and history) at Mohawk College, York University and Brock University. Doug has studied jazz harmony, arranging, form and analysis and counterpoint. At York University, Doug had the privilege of studying with Canadian jazz great Don Thompson as well as seminars with Dr. Oscar Peterson.
Doug is currently one of the most in demand musicians in the Niagara area. He is active accompanying vocalists, leading his duo and trio, working as a sideman on gigs and in the studio, as well as performing solo piano at various functions. Doug has recently completed a tour of New Zealand working with a collection of the country’s finest Jazz musicians.
Rob McBride is a highly in-demand bassist and bandleader who has been performing in the Toronto jazz scene for the last 25 years, playing at many of the city’s top jazz venues. While specializing in jazz, Rob is also influenced by solo classical and improvised bass music and has incorporated creative aspects of these elements into his sound through his five-string acoustic bass. Headliner performances includes the TD Niagara Jazz Festival (2014) and the Brampton World of Jazz Festival (2017). Rob has played with some of Canada’s finest musicians, including Pat LaBarbera, Don Thompson, Ted Warren, Sarah Jerrom, and Adrean Farrugia. He has played with the pit orchestra for the Shaw Festival and the Niagara Symphony Orchestra. Rob has played on many critically-acclaimed albums including recordings by Sarah Jerrom, Beverly Taft, Jeff King, and Barbara Mantini.
